New OSHA Online Tool to Help with Recordkeeping
The U.S. Department of Labor has issued the OSHA Recordkeeping Advisor http://www.dol.gov/elaws/OSHARecordkeeping.htm
, a new Web tool to help employers understand their responsibilities to report and record work-related injuries and illnesses. The OSHA Recordkeeping Advisor helps employers quickly determine whether an injury or illness is work-related, whether a work-related injury or illness needs to be recorded, and which provisions of the regulations apply when recording a work-related injury or illness. The Advisor is written in plain language to help employers understand OSHA’s recordkeeping requirements.
